I don't see how BW resolves your dilemma. If you learn BW, you'll again be pushing in a hands-on direction, and unless you fall in love with BW, you'll probably still "long for" project management. I have written about the project manager versus hands-on dilemma before, and the tradeoffs of each, so look at some of my past answers in previous months. Your best way out might be to find companies that like hands-on project managers. Some companies do, and then you wouldn't be so torn between two options. In general, however, I do think you should focus on excelling in one career path or the other, and that means making a hard choice. It's hard to succeed in two difference areas against professionals who are only focusing on one. Once you make a firm choice, don't look back.
